Hey spacedface...

I admire your pluck, but in trying to reason w/NC you're dealing with an impossible situation.

Anyone who tries to liken what Bush & Co. did: lying to the American public about non-existent WMD for the purpose of invading Iraq...with anything that happened in WW2 is just a hopeless apologist for the Bush clan.

I know many people who proudly call themselves Republicans who nevertheless admit that what the Bush administration did is unprecedented in its disdain for the truth and contempt for the American public.

They may not agree with me on the best way out of the mess, but they do agree that lying about the reasons for going (WMD), then changing their tune late in the game to "liberating freedom-loving Iraqis" is a slap in the face to anyone who expects a US Democracy to be better than the rest of the governments around the world who flout Democratic values.
